The Leeds branch is the fifth Perspex Distribution branch and joins the existing distribution centres located in Blackburn, Tamworth, Chelmsford and Weybridge.
Keith Piggott, Managing Director of Perspex Distribution and Lucite International General Manager of European Sheet and Composites, commented: “Our expansion is a direct result of our need to meet customer demand across the region and since our name is synonymous with exceptional service and product knowledge, the opening of our largest operation in Leeds provides us with a strong foundation to grow both our product range and customer base in the years to come.”
Leeds Branch Manager Jonathan Marsden added “Ultimately our business is about availability and quick delivery and our two Holzma HPP500 saws, 500 tonnes of stock and fleet of five delivery vehicles will enable us to meet the growing demand for quality materials in this area.”
The open day provided the company with an opportunity to demonstrate the full extent of its systems and services together with the full portfolio of products available which were also represented through key manufacturing partners including SloanLED, Palram IPB and Multipanel UK.
